Director’s message in the time of COVID-19 on Academic Activities
My dear students,
We hope that you and your family are all well and safe during this unprecedented COVID-19 situation. Our main concern now is on how to face and overcome this difficult phase of pandemic COVID-19.
Our Institute held several Senate and BOG meetings to bring the best solutions for the students and decided to extend the closure of the Institute and cancel physical classes for the period beyond April 2020. Therefore, please do not plan or arrange your return to NIT Manipur campus unless we inform you. The faculty and staff members of NIT Manipur decided to move towards online (not necessarily live) delivery of the course Lectures for the next semester August 2020-December 2020 academic session. Very shortly, we will notify you of the starting of the academic session in August 2020 with software/apps platforms to be used. You should not have any apprehension about the difficulty for Online classes in accessing the content online. You can email your course concern faculty and they will guide you accordingly. We are also discussing several possibilities to make the Online classes comfortable [for all UG/Masters/PhD] right now depending on how the situation evolves and appropriate decisions will be taken and intimated to you all in due course of time. I am glad to inform you all that we are also working on the refunds of your fees (which will be adjusted for future) for Hostels mess for the month of April – July 2020.
I request to all of you to strictly follow the guidelines regarding health and precautions provided by the government agencies to fight against this spread of the virus. With these few words, I wish you all a very good time with your family which you miss during your stay at the campus, engaged yourself in academic activities and please take care of yourself and your family during this hard time.
Prof. (Dr.). Goutam Sutradhar
